> Spinoff from java-dev thread "Sorting with little memory: A suggestion", started by Toke
Eskildsen.
> When sorting by SortField.STRING we currently ask FieldCache for a StringIndex on that
field.
> This can consumes tons of RAM, when the values are mostly unique (eg a title field),
as it populates both int[] ords as well as String[] values.
> But, if the index is only one segment, and the search sets fillFields=false, we don't
need the String[] values, just the int[] ords.  If the app needs to show the fields it can
pull them (for the 1 page) from stored fields.
> This can be a potent optimization -- alot of RAM saved -- for optimized indexes.
> When fixing this we must take care to share the int[] ords if some queries do fillFields=true
and some =false... ie, FieldCache will be called twice and it should share the int[] ords
across those invocations.
